June 23, 2023 – On Friday, June 23 at 8 p.m., Saginaw Road will close to through traffic at the Main Street intersection for work related to Phase III of the Concept 5 Sewer Improvement Plan.
During the closure, traffic will be detoured via Dublin Avenue, Wackerly Street, and Sturgeon Avenue until approximately 12 p.m. on Saturday, June 24. Saginaw will then reopen to one lane of through traffic in each direction from Sturgeon Avenue to Dublin Avenue as pipe upsizing work continues.
Work on Saginaw Road is anticipated to be completed in mid-July, weather permitting.
When completed, the sewer upsizing project in this area will increase the size of 8,000+ linear feet of sanitary sewer pipe along Perrine Road, Saginaw Road, Main Street, and W. Sugnet Road.
As this is an extensive project spanning multiple construction seasons, work will be completed in phases as outlined below:
- Phase 1 (In progress): Sugnet Road from W. Main Street to Valley Drive. Sugnet Road is closed to through traffic and local traffic will be maintained for the duration of construction in this phase.
- Phase 2 (In progress): W. Main Street from Sugnet Road to Saginaw Road. Main Street will be closed to through traffic and local traffic will be maintained for the duration of construction in this phase.
- Phase 3 (In progress): Saginaw Road from W. Main Street to Perrine Road. One lane of eastbound and westbound traffic will be maintained for the duration of construction in this phase. During sanitary sewer placement in the eastbound lanes, a complete road closure will be in effect for a short duration.
- Phase 4: Perrine Road from Saginaw Road to Moorland Drive. Perrine Road will be closed to through traffic and local traffic will be maintained for the duration of construction in this phase.
Work on subsequent phases will not begin until substantial completion of the previous phase has occurred. The entire upsizing project is estimated to be completed in June 2024.
